Nostalgia: a yearning for yesterday: is a frequently used advertising tool. It is particularly common in the chocolate industry. This classic Hovis bread advert from 1973 creates a nostalgic atmosphere of a more innocent time: Audrey Hepburn Audrey Hepburn was a huge Hollywood star in the 1950s and 1960s. She was associated with Hollywood glamour and style and was also a fashion icon and model. She died in 1993 at the age of 63. For the Galaxy advert, the advertising

agency used a CGI-version of Hepburn from 1953, the year of her hit film Roman Holiday. The advert is set on the luxurious Italian Riviera which creates intertextuality and nostalgia two key audience pleasures. This advert is of some cultural significance because of its extensive use of CGI and its intertextual references to a dead celebrity. Roman holiday trailer British actress, model, dancer

Narrative theories Propps Character theory Vladimir Propp stated that there were seven basic character functions when he analysed 100 fairy tales and that these were present in most narratives. Media

products still use these recognisable character types today: Hero, Villain, Heroine/Princess, Father, Donor, Helper/Sidekick, False Hero Todorov: equilibrium Todorov suggested that all narratives follow a three part structure. They begin with equilibrium, where everything is balanced, progress as something comes along to disrupt that equilibrium, and finally reach a resolution,

when a new equilibrium is restored. Equilibrium > Disequilibrium > New equilibrium This can be applied to most media narratives.
